New England Revolution Eye Somerville for Soccer Stadium

The MLS soccer team and the city have had "conversations" about building a stadium in Assembly Square, according to New England Soccer Today.

Somerville and the New England Revolution, an MLS soccer team, have had discussions about building a new soccer stadium in Assembly Square, according to New England Soccer Today.

The discussions are preliminary, and The Revolution are also considering Revere's Wonderland Greyhound Park as a possible site for a soccer-specific stadium, the article says.

The MLS team has looked at Somerville as a possible place to build a stadium before, the soccer website says: In 2007 and 2008 it considered the Inner Belt and Brickbottom section of the city as a possible site.

This time around, the case for Somerville is bolstered because Assembly Square would be home to an Orange Line station that's expected to open in 2014, according to New England Soccer Today.

Do you want the New England Revolution to come to Assembly Square?

Sounds like a cool idea, something like a mini-patriots place. I do think it is unfortunate that innerbelt is no longer in the running.

Nowadays, soccer is the king of the sports in many countries. For this reason I think that building a new soccer stadium can be a good idea. Kids love to play soccer or funny games online on www.frivgames4all.co.uk
